great vehicle! bit cost $$$ in speeding tickets
Cons: Road clearance, and not a good car for someone with a lead foot!I loved this car into a ditch! Not worth a darn in snow or rain. No under carriage clearance.
Chrysler 300 - Love mine
Pros: The Ride
Cons: Sits a little low and can have some blind spotsI have the V6 3.5 engine, the gas milage is great for the size and comfort of the car. I get 20 mpg around town and 28 on the highway. I have 90,000 miles and have not had any maintenance other than the normal wear items. The price of new vehicles is getting higher and higher, I bought mine used 4 years ago with no regrets. If you are looking for a solid car with comfort and style the 300 with not disappoint.
Pros: The kick in the a...s it gives you at any speed !!!!
Cons: The cruise control stalk. Akward to use.
Advice: Get one but make it a HEMI !!!!Man this car is the BOMB !!! I am an ex... GM dealer and the last caddy my wife drove she hated so in 1999 I bought her a 300m and again in 2002 another 300m. She loved both cars and they were never in the shop for other than normal maintanance!!! Each car had 60,000 miles on them when turned in. I now have a Thrifty car rental agency and in 2005 we ran some base 300's and a few touring versions in our fleet. I HATED them!!!! When she was due for her new car in September I didn't know what we were going to do so I started looking at the caddy CTS and Audi A-6. Than the Chrysler dealer that I bought the 2 300m's from brought me a 2006 300c Hemi to drive for the day. It was love at 1st drive and I and my wife like it more each day. After vowing not to buy one we're gald we did. This is one AWSOME ride!!!!
Pros: It's looks are so cool-got that Bently look to it.
Cons: It's not mine - She's not fond of the chopped look
Advice: Definatly get the C - just test drive it - you'll get hookedThis car was bought for my wife but she really didn't know what she was getting, going from a Honda Accord to a Hemi, the smile told it all on the test drive. I didn't even have to drive it. The new Charger has nothing on this car, THIS IS A MUSCLE CAR....with a load of luxury and it's BIG, Everyone knows her now by the lady with that beautiful yellow car, after six months it's still turning heads..Can't say enough about it, This car screams.
Pros: It is quiet and comfortable like reading a book by yourself in a living room.
Cons: Nothing really, just don't drive it like a Honda Civic because the engine is touchy and not designed for sport driving.
Advice: If you like a calm quiet comfortable ride at a good price, then buy the 300 Base Model or 300 Touring Model. If you are more into showing off like you are driving a muscle car then go for the 300C or SRT8.This car is everything I ever wanted in a full sized family sedan. When you get on the freeway you feel that you have total control on the vehicle, even at 90 mph! I never experience any shaking or drifting at high speeds. On top of this the noise is minimal at 90 mph, where most cars are noisy and somewhat sluggish, like our previous 2003 Mitubishi Galant. I love going around town in the 300 because I feel so safe as if I am sitting on the couch at home. You can't go wrong with this car, if you are not a performance nut that is. I recommend the 300 Touring or higher for the performance nut.
Pros: That 30's Gangster Styling with a Futuristic Twist
Cons: Getting out of it to sleep!!
Advice: Be Warned - If You Test Drive One, You'll Find a Way to Buy ItThis car is the perfect combination of luxury,handling,and style. The ride is cushy but firm - on corners it remains quite flat with no roll;hugs the road like a big sports car.It's extremely quiet when cruising and roomy like the cars of the 50's! Styling is very cool and you feel conspicuous driving it! We got the base 300 with the 2.7L V6 and yes, a 3.5L would be nice (the Hemi price was prohibitive), but with 2 kids in college we were absolutely thrilled to afford such an incredible car.It's nice to be so excited about our new car!!!
